in orlando, vice president biden pledged that the obama administration would make sure that future infrastructure investments are more targeted to local areas. in november, last year, the vice president hosted our leadership in the white house to discuss the fiscal cliff and the concerns of mayors regarding both investment programs and tax-exempt financing. whenever there's a major issue that demands attention, again and again and again, vice president joe biden has shown the leadership and courage needed to help move our nation in the right direction. and that is why i was certainly heartened when president obama asked vice president biden to lead a special task force to develop responses to the tragedy not only at sandy hook elementary school, but the daily tragedies we see all across america. the nation's mayors and vice president biden have stood together for many, many years in support of public safety. after all, it was then-senator joe biden who championed the crime bill, which established the cops program and included the ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines,

the conversation, here are the numbers to call -- host: we're looking at promises made in the obama administration. what counts as a promise kept? what counts as a promise broken? guest: we were inventing a new form of journalism. the beauty of the obameter is you can look things up by subject, by reading. a lot of critics like to focus on the things that we call promises broken. we had to define what was a promise kept and what was a promise broken. how did we define a promise? we defined it promised as a guarantee of prospective action that was verifiable, then we read it typically into one of two ratings. in the work that there was some sort of progress toward fulfilling or stalled if there was a lack of progress. at a point that we felt like we could judge completion, with an decided whether it was kept were broken. kept is pretty much you hear it, the promise has been substantially or completely fulfilled, broken, not fulfilled pretty trickier ones are compromise, to where there has been some progress, where there has been a partial achievement of the goal. ultimately these are judgment calls
objection for the obama administration, the policies they put forward and especially the gun control outlined the other day and it's interesting, to answer basic questions about his background, i'm not sure how relevant. it would change my view of his political ideas, which are wrong. but he deserves to be asked the questions and marjorie's point that he was vetted, but he was not vetted much by the press. the average person with the voting record in illinois as a state senator and the truth is most reporters felt in '08 and 2012 it was pretty important that this guy be elected president, a historic figure, good guy, one of us, academic and intellectual, they didn't do a deep dive on barack obama, very few hard-nose reporters in the campaigns, trust me, i was there. >> maybe not on the reporter side, but counter campaign side and they overturn any rock they can find to get dirt on him and given the birther movement and associated with that, there was a lot of accountability in the campaign. look, mitt romney didn't want to release his tax records, why would a politician give more inf
